Winter Months

Hello and Happy Winter to all.

We have ordered our seeds and updated our list. Yeah!!
Starting to get excited for this season. Lots of new things in store for us all.
We will keep you updated so keep looking us up.

In the mean time take advantage of this beautiful winter we are having and get out for some skiing, snowshoeing or whatever it is that you enjoy doing while the cold weather is upon us.

Take Care

It's August-this summer is flying by....

I can't believe it is already August!
I'm sure everyone is enjoying all their veggies. We have had: radishes, tomatillo, snow peas, cucumbers, zucchini, summer squash, tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, green beans and eggplant.
Lots of great remarks on our extra information sent with the recipes each week. Thanks to Elisa's knowledge!! She will have a bit of a break her soon since (in case you didn't know) there will be a new arrival in the family soon. Her due date was yesterday and little Ella is being stubborned. (Had to put my made up word, thought it fit).
Please let me know if you are not going to be picking up your bags so that we don't waste your vegetables.

Have a great month and if you have any questions, feel free to contact us!

Your farmers,

Bud & Karen

July 2010

The farm is doing very well at this point.
Just about everything will be coming out all at the same time. I hope everyone is ready for some heavy bags!

Please let me know if you are interested in a canning class. I will put one together if we have enough interest. If we are going to do this we should have it before we get bombarded by tomatoes which will be in the next few weeks.

We have had some great recipes so far with radishes, snow peas, pickles and cucumbers.

It was nice to have the rain just recently which helped with bringing some life back to the plants.

Hope everyone is having a great summer:-))

June 2010

It is getting closer and closer to our new season starting. Yeah!!

I don't know about you guys but I have been craving those fresh veggies for a long time.

We will send out an e-mail to all shareholders when we know when the first basket will start so be on the look out for that soon. Last year it started 2nd week of June. We hope to be close to that. The lettuce isn't popping up as quickly as hoped but maybe when the rain slows down we may see more growth??? Keep your fingers crossed :-))

Don't forget that this blog is for the shareholders to communicate with each other and swap recipes.

Happy June,

April 2010

Hello to all and Happy Spring!!

Even though we have still been getting frost in some evenings and early mornings that hasn't stopped us. We have a new greenhouse & a new (to us) tractor.
The ground looks great, the greenhouse is getting filled up. Things are looking good!

In case you haven't heard, we will be at the Grand Rapids Museum 4/23 & 4/24 from 10:00am -3:00pm. They are hosting a Earth to Sky day and called us to be the CSA table. Thanks to everyone for getting our name out there!!

We have a few more opening but are filling fast so if you know anyone that is still interested let them know.

We will probably start the newsletter in May so be looking for that soon.

We have made some changes to the website and some pictures to "on the farm" section.

So glad to have the cold winter behind us and sunny summer ahead,

Karen :-)))

End of our 1st season

We had a wonderful 1st season! The weather gave us a bit of a problem with some storms but handled it as well as we could.
We have has so many compliments on the way things were handled this year and enquiries for next year.
We will not start taking applications and payment til after the holidays. It will be a first come first serve process.
If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with us either by e-mail or phone.

We hope that everyone enjoys the upcoming holidays and our beautiful Michigan winters. Lots to do outside in this wonderful state such as cross country skiing (which is my personal fav), tubing, snow shoeing, and nice brisk walks through the country side.

This will be the last blog posting until spring so Happy Holidays, be safe, have fun and get outside and get some fresh air through the next few months.

Until next time........

Karen :-)))))
